More information Gareth Southgate has refused to rule out barring WAGs from England’s World Cup base in Qatar due to ongoing Covid concerns. The Lionesses were forced to spend the entirety of their Euro 2022 triumph away from their families this summer, and the men’s coach is in regular contact with senior players about how to best deal with the threat next month. “You have to decide how much risk you’re willing to take.” Southgate elaborated. “If you lose a player or two, that could be their only chance to play in the World Cup.” I’m sure their families are aware of this as well. We’re talking with the senior players about it, and they’re realizing how complicated it is. Obviously, there is a lot of uncertainty about where we will be in terms of infection rates and what that will look like.

Southgate admitted that England was assigned a difficult Euro 2024 qualifying group. (GETTY) Earlier on Sunday, England learned who their opponents for the Euros 2024 qualifying group would be. Southgate’s men were drawn in a difficult group with Italy, Ukraine, Malta, and North Macedonia. The England manager admitted that qualifying for the tournament will be a “challenge,” saying: “”You know there will be high-level games, and we certainly know enough about them that there won’t be too many surprises,” he said. “It’s a difficult group.” Ukraine is a very strong team, but as North Macedonia demonstrated against Italy, there are complications.” “I suppose it’s the first time in a while where there’s maybe a little more jeopardy and excitement in a qualifying group,” he added. It’s good for football because you need that element of danger to make the game more exciting.” Articles Related to England fans may face World Cup disruption due to the threat of ‘power outages.’ England Women defeat best in the world USA at a packed Wembley England’s Wiegman and USA coach agree on Lionesses’ World Cup chances
